With the winners already identified, it's time to focus on the losers of last month's NFL Draft. Looking back we can identify who handled the fanfare appallingly when dealing away players, who got usurped by better franchises and which team downright reached like crazy.
Ben Roethlisberger’s Steelers faced off against Kurt Warner’s underdog Cardinals in a match up for the ages. This for me ranks as one of the very best Super Bowls, filled with interesting narratives, wonderful plays and a tremendous finish. This review will take a step back to February 1st 2009 and address what could have been for the plucky Cards.
The one word that comes to mind when describing the 49ers last year is ‘unlucky’. Jimmy Garoppolo’s innocuous injury, accomplished attempting to rush for an additional yard, ended his season and consequently the 49ers hopes.
The Jets have not made the playoffs since 2010, and only really looked close in 2015 when they finished 10-6.
The firing of New York Jets General Manager Mike Maccagnan on Wednesday was surprising, not so much for its actual occurrence but more for its timing.
Arguably the biggest criticism of the 2018 squad is that they were quite dull and boring. Besides the ‘Miami Miracle’ play against the Patriots, I cannot think of anything of relevance that they did last year.
The Kansas City Chiefs were one of the NFL's most exciting and dangerous teams last season. Why haven't they built on that this offseason?
Two years ago the Jaguars were on the periphery of greatness, but a questionable ref call and the excellence of Tom Brady denied the Jaguars their first Super Bowl appearance.Blake Bortles was resigned to a new contract, and their defence was expected to improve. In reality the Jaguars took a major step back last year, finishing 5-11 amid player disharmony and dispute. Since then, the Bortles experiment is finished and the Nick Foles era has begun.
The 2019 NFL Draft was filled with shock picks and drama across the weekend. Draft reaction from New England Patriots to the Washington Redskins is here.
Now we’ve had a week to chew on the 2019 NFL Draft, the big winners and the whimpering losers have emerged from the events that went down in Nashville. From all the pomp and ceremony of Day 1 where teams went looking for their next star, to Day 3 where the hunt took place for a late round steal; no stone was left un-turned by any franchise hoping to build a winning team.
